government because it would further cast the need of this delicate movement and might create more fuel shortages in the coming days. >> meanwhile the protests are intensifying. tell us what has been happening and what the government's response has been to this growing pressure. >> the last 24 hours were really very delicate moments for the yemeni and for its president in particular. he gave orders for the security forces to clear the protest camps saying that it's illegal, and sending warning that they don't have the right to block roads. then into the operation he gave orders to his officers to pull out from the area because in a way he sensed that this is something that could escalate. it could send houthies it send their own fighters, and it could
9:15 am
trigger civil war. the president is meeting with his top military widers and will make decisions about appointing new army commanders and generals. he does not feel that everybody in the army is loyal to him. once he's sure he has the loyalty of the military establishment and political establishment he may take action. >> thank you, reports from sanaa. now to africa, the african union has started an emergency meeting to how to fight the ebola outbreak in west africa. five countries in the region are infected and 2,000 people have been killed as a result of the dea deadly virus. the virus has a mortality rate of 50%. cal rain what exactly is the

9:17 am
but a lot of people will tell you who have been watching closely that it has taken a little bit of awhile for them to react. this meeting is coming a li a bit late. people are saying that the a.u. needs to be more proactive and better coordinated with the international community as well. >> there is criticism in the african community that they have not done enough in this crisis. ebola now resurfacing in the democratic republic of congo. >> yes, that's correct. it's a different strain in the d.d.r.c. than what is happening. this is the seventh outbreak in
9:18 am
the democratic republic of congo. they are facing how remote the faces are in the northwest in the country. it's quite remote. the villages, it's taken quite a bit to get medical person medicapersonnel and medical supplies to the people who are infected. those who are dealing with the crisis in the d.a.r. say the crisis is contained. the villages are further out and so they have been contained. 200 or so have been infected, but they still need more word to come out that the d.r.c. has
9:19 am
suffered so much, and people in villages again don't understand what the disease is and what it's doing to them. they need a lot of help and support and their plight should come out just as strongly as what is happening in west africa. >> thank you very much. lebanese prime minister has appealed for calm after apparent beheading of a second lebanese soldier by the islamic state group. >> for the mother, the way to discover the fate of her son is over. on saturday they released footage showing his execution. it's confirmed that makes him the second lebanese soldier to be killed after capture inside lebanon by syrian fighters. lebanese prime minister rarely
9:20 am

9:21 am
groups have spoken out against. >> those who come to lebanon, this is a humanitarian act. >> the incursion is also with the most serious conflict yet and has raised concerns that it could make things worse. >> africa union peacekeeping troops are being accused of preying on vulnerable women and girls. details of alleged offenses, the report ties ten different incidents of rape and sexual assault and 14 cases of sexual exploitation. troops are accused of using humanitarian aid to coerce women and girls into having sex with them. only two of the 21 interviewed
9:22 am
filed a complaint. many said they didn't out of fear of retribution. while the human rights does not watch the scale of sexual abuse it said the report raises serious concerns. we spoke to human rights watch earlier. >> reporter: there appears to be a trend in how this is happening, how the soldiers are luring women in, picking them up at hospitals, taking them to facilities and housing on the bases and once again suggesting this is much more organized and potentially even tolerated from a higher level. >> we have a response from the africa union. what do you respond to these serious accusations from human rights. they say the abuse is organized and potentially even tolerated
9:23 am
at a high level. what do you say? >> what i can say is that the africa union and amazon take those allegations very seriously, and they will be properly investigated and proper measure will be taken. those people found responsible will be dealt with through mechanisms that we have in place. what i would like to say about the report, we were a little bit concerned about the report. we have 23,000 personnel in amazon, and the report went from a small sample that i'm not saying is negligible to making
9:24 am
generalization that now reflects the way majority of our troops are being conducting themselves. and also it does not reflect the reality in terms of the human sacrifice that has been made in somalia in supporting the somali people and the government to keep peace. >> let me just say this. the abused human rights watch say it is more widespread than the 21 cases they investigated. they say witnesses saw numerous women and girls were seen coming to the bases, taken to the africa union bases in mogadishu. were you aware this was happening on the bases? >> i mean, the report said there
9:25 am
was a handful of individuals. and it came out as a surprise to us that the way it was portrayed, there was misrepresentation of what has happened at the same time as i said-- >> but were you aware that there were women and girls who were taken to africa union bases? >> i've never been aware, that's why i say that the investigation will be launched. people who are found are guilty proper action will be taken. >> do you deny that the africa union mission is covering up these abuses? >> as i said the africa union has zero tolerance policy, and we do not undermine cases of
9:26 am
special abuses, but we have mechanisms in place so we can bring the people accountable to face the corrective measures that we have. >> thank you very much for spe speaking to us. spokesman joining us live from mogadishu. staying with somalia where we're getting reports of a suicide car bombing, a car parked with explosives. 12 people are reported dead. we'll bring you more information as we get it. devastating floods inundat ed large parts of pakistan and india. the reported dead 160 as they continue their efforts to reach thousands of stranded people.
9:27 am
meanwhile, slides have killed 205 people. in pakistan. punjab province the hardest-hit area where thousands have been left homeless. >> any relief? >> meteorologist: i would hope so. you can see all the weather action is across the western parts. you see showers over the northern parts of india, the general trend is for tryer weather to be effecting the region. look at the precipitation, by september it should be falling away and less than 100 millimeters. but in the last week or so we've seen 450 millimeters, and so you can understand the problem. and within the space of seven
9:28 am
days something like 400 millimeters. it does look as though the worst of that rain is now on its way out. you're seeing that clearing away. just a few showers. going through thursday and friday we'll see a few more showers but it's across the western gaps that we'll see heavy rain over the next couple of days. that continues moving through wednesday. some central areas picking up heavy showers. right now it's just a case of waiting for what has fallen to work its way through, and things will begin to improve. >> thank you very much, richard. still ahead on the al jazeera news hour one year living in a sports stadium. why many are still waiting to go home. plus, should they stay or should they go. gaining momentum for a close vote, and in sports the new york yankees honor one of their al

9:31 am
under pressure to stop the islamic state group. investigations have found boeing workers who have found concerns in the safety of the 787 aircraft. some say they will not fly on the plane. the dreamliner was temporarily grounded last year. boeing said it does not compromise on product safety or quality. well, more on that story. boeing announced the 787 in 2003 marketing it as the dreamliner, but the problems still stacked up. by the time of its first commercial flight the plane was three years late. in 2013 two batteries failed on three airliners and it was grounded for safety concerns. in july the battery on an emergency burned a hole into the
9:32 am
skin of the 778. we're joined live from boston, cynthia thank you for joining us. you were an engineer for boeing for 3 28 years. when did you first notice problems with the boeing 787. >> as president of the union and i was president from 2006 through 2010, members of the union would approach me and say they weren't being listened to by their managers. that's when i first became aware of significant issues on the 787 program. >> why did these issues start, do you think?
9:33 am
>> you know, boeing engineers tend to take problems as challenges to solve. they'll go for a while before they start to get frustrated with not being listened to, and the members were telling me that schedule, schedule, schedule was most important and their first-line supervisors were telling them they didn't want to hear about the problems, technical issues on the aircra aircraft. technical issues they were encountering in their engineering work. when they could no longer get a voice through their management structure they started to call me. i would be out and about shopping or whatever, and members would approach me in stores and say my managers are not listening. my manager is not listening to me. we've got problems, and i'm concerned. and so i made several visits to the everett factory and saw conditions for myself. i talked to them, and started having management-type meetings.
9:34 am
we would meet with the managers and we were working hard to figure out what was going on, and why were the members feeling this way. >> to what extent, cynthia, do you think the merger with mcdonald douglas contributed to these quality issues? >> i think it's the main factor involved. we saw our culture change after the merger with mcdonald douglas. this was a company that was failing, in a couple of months there would be no mcdonald douglas, and then boeing purchased it, and then we saw the company change to what was not the boeing company. it did not have the high integrity of work quality. the whole culture was completely different from our culture. we started to see changes. you talk to anyone who is a heritage boeing employee in defense projects or commercial projects and they'll say the
9:35 am
mcdonald douglas merger is when things began to change. >> do you think there are issues with other boeing products? well, the dreamliner is the first large boeing project to be produced as commercial. it's the first one that has happened since the merger. we see issues in other parts of the company, too, yet we felt more empowered to battle those issues. yet, there are issues with the merger. and the engineers, the heritage engineers have constantly got to fight for engineering integrity. >> cynthia, very good to hear your thoughts and i couldn't view, former president of the union of unions for boeing engineers joining us live from boston. thank you for your time. >> now exactly six months into
9:36 am
the airliner disappeared, there were emotional scenes when police tried to move this group on. >> reporter: china's mid autumn festival, a time when people gather and give thanks, but for several is families they could not meet loved ones this year. despite the best efforts of authorities to talk the group out of it they met. >> we don't know what to do. we feel tortured. we haven't gotten any compensation. >> dai shuqn said she lost five members of her family and they were recently abused during altercation with police.
9:37 am
>> he was seriously beaten up. it was very brutal. >> this man said his six-year-old son was a target after the pair tried to sleep the night at a support center two months ago. >> i was holding my son. the police man came and grabbed him and threw him in the police car. he was so scared. >> the police have failed to respond to those allegations but authorities insist they have done everything for their families. above the grieving he reads out a poem dedicated to the missing. even now they have not give up hope. we expect our love ohed ones to come home. such open deplays of emotion are frowned upon by the authorities
9:38 am
and by now the police had clearly had enough. but they can't stifle this group. after six months it remains real and raw. adrian brown, al jazeera, beijing. >> ten days until scotland votes whether to become independent of britain, and for the first time the yes campaign is ahead in the opinion poles. that has sparked alarm among politicians. we go to westminster in london. how worried are they at westminster about this latest poll? >> reporter: well, very worried. the newspapers who have glibly said for months that scots can't vote and it would be the stuffest idea in years. the queen, we're told, is politically neutral is very
9:39 am
worried. many have come together and announced on the back of this poll marginally now are going to come up with later this week come up with a package that they want to put to the scottish people in the end of a no independence vote but would give the scots a lot more power short of independence. it's very late in the day for them to be doing this. some scots have already voted. some have accused outright of panicking. but the ramifications of scotland breaking away, which is entirely possible now, is very profound not just on scotland but the rest of the united kingdom as well. >> does the british government have a contingency plan? >> reporter: well, they say they have not made any contingency
9:40 am
plans in the face of independence because to do so admits that it's possible. but these discussions are going on openly. we're told there are conservatives who overtly blame david cameron for the mess they're in now and may call for him t to resign. there is a question mark over next year's general election, which is supposed to be held next may. but what happens if scotland declares independence in 2016, so, it is entirely uncharted territory. people are saying it's the biggest crisis in centuries. the last time an election was not able to be held was in the second world war, so it's difficult for them to know precisely what to do. in the meantime they'll try as hard as they possibly can to avert the crisis. >> thank you very much,
9:41 am
lawrence. lawrence lee reporting from london. now to the philippines where thousands of families in the south are still living in makeshift homes a year after being displaced by fighting. 100 people were killed when rebels battled the army in the area. there has been criticism about the time it has taken to resettle people. >> moving to temporary accommodations in a sports stadium. one year on she still calls it home. she, her children and grandchildren, a total of 16 people all sharing the one small room. >> i hope we can go back to our home soon because it's very dirty. it smells, and it's bad for my grandchildren. >> it is also here that her husband died from an illness she believes was made worse by the

conditions. struggling with lack of sanitation and running water health is a constant concern. >> these are the conditions we have here. this is really a challenge with the number of displaced population. >> a year ago when an attack by a breakaway faction from the morrow national liberation front displaced 100,000 people. 40,000 remain homeless. the government has been building permanent houses and providing materials for people to rebuild their old homes but progress is slow. >> the plan is to clear people from the stadium by the end of this year, but the rebuilding of these homes won't be completed until the middle of next year. that's nearly two years after the fighting that originally displaced them. >> reporter: in badly damaged neighborhoods like santa catalina a nine out of ten homes were destroyed. many families are not waiting for government assistance but
9:43 am
have been rebuilding on their own. >> i've been asking my neighbors how the conditions are, and they've been telling me until now they're find technolog finding it difficult. they don't have power. they don't have supply of water. >> some neighborhoods are trying to speed up what has been a long, slow recovery. al jazeera, southern philippines. >> breaking news from somalia. we're getting reports of a second car bomb targeting a somali convoy. this comes after a car packed with explosives around the convoy of african peace keepers, 12 people reported dead. no word on the number people killed in the second blast reported in the somali capitol. we'll bring you more information as we get it, of course. seren

away with no bullets, we had to fight back the weather. the ice was cracking. >> this exhibition is particularly special to recognize staying in a relatively small space he had to choose the images very carefully. these, he said, are his favorites. icelanders, themselves, say that rex has shined a spotlight on the northern country. >> i think its just one of the best photographers, and has been for three decades. >> praise that's difficult for rex to take as he sees his work as both a blessing and a duty in the face of climate change abroad and at home. >> iceland is kind of something like you have nose on your face, but you don't see it. you have to look in the mirror. i see it more in other countries than here.
9:48 am
but it's changing in front of me. >> a daunting prospect for a man deeply connected to this region as he watches and catches it' it slowly melting away. al jazeera. >> let's go to sports. >> the most powerful man in world football said he will stand for fifth term as president of fifa. the 78-year-old has been in charge of the sport's governing body for the last 16 years. in that time it has faced corruption scandals and criticism, but he has been buoyed by the success of this year. and now blatter is now confident of being reelected. >> now i would make an official declaration definitely in september now when we have the executive committee and perform the question of respect to say
